ordered his staff-officers, four in number (Major Charles Pickett, Captain Baird, Captain Symington and myself), to Generals Armistead, Garnett and Kemper, and to Dearing's Artillery Battalion, which earlier in the day had been ordered to follow up the charge and keep its caissons full.
Orders to the other staff officers I did notolonel Williams fell earlier in the fight.
His mare went up rideless almost to the stone wall and was caught when walking back by Captain William C. Marshall, of Dearing's Battalion.
His own horse, Lee, having been killed, he rode Colonel Williams' mare away after the fight.
When I returned to General Pickett from giving the ordme into line of battle, sweep around our flank and shut us up. He said, I have been watching my left all the time, expecting this, but it is provided for. Ride to Dearing's Battalion; they have orders to follow up the charge and keep their caissons filled; order them to open with every gun and break that column and keep it broken.
